Setup Sheets:
Setup sheets for all Tekno RC vehicles can be found here. Please be sure to try our recommended setup. It works very well on most tracks.

Warranty Policy:
Tekno RC is the only company in the industry that will give 50% off of parts if returned to them using the General Warranty return policy found on their website. The parts can be lightly used or completely abused, as long as the part is still being produced it's covered!

Piston Drills:
Some of our setups recommend using pistons that are enlarged. For instance 4x1.9 or 3x2.0. To drill the pistons we recommend the following:
GMK Supply Piston Drill Set
16PC Metric Bit Set Metric Sizes 2.00 to 3.00 MM.

I know I put the ESC backwards from the way most of you do...
Shrink wrap mine...no room back there !!

I've got a bunch of tires left over from my SC10. I tried them on my SCT410 and they almost work but in some cases they rub a little. It looks like TKR1654X adds another 1mm of offset. Any idea if this will give me enough clearance to run my old tires? I really don't care about being ROAR legal.

I've heard of these.......my only concern is that your pulling the wheel hub further away from the hex, causing less area for hub/hex grip, possibly resulting in stripping the hub. No?

Yeah, I thought of that. For $5 more I'll probably just get the wider hexes.

It looks like the hinge pins are rubbing on the inside webbing of the wheels (Proline F11). I may just take a dremel to the pins and cut off the excess threads.

I think dremel is a better way to go.

Taking meat off the bone? Wouldn't this ruin the structure, integrity and rigidity of the wheel? Why not just get what fits? I have a set of wheels that came with the truck that rub the back arms, I wouldn't think to modify the wheel, I would think this only weakens a very crucial part of the truck?
I may be wrong, and I'm sure I am if you ask my 2 ex wives, lol. Just my .02's

Ha ha poor guy....2 ex
Not saying taking a whole lot out of the wheels...just enough not to rub. I personally don't use those F11 anyway , to me they are too soft and too inconsistent for my racing application. DE wheels are the ones I like

Hope that helps
